Microsoft Exchange has different kinds of mailboxes. Depending on your requirement one mailbox can be chosen above the other. There may be a need sometimes to convert a Regular Mailbox to a Shared Mailbox.
A shared Mailbox is a mailbox where more than one user can have access to the Mailbox. All the users can view the content of the mailbox. And depending on the permissions set one can have either a single User or multiple users able to send mail from the mailbox.
In order to convert a Regular Mailbox to a Shared Mailbox follow these steps-
- Goto the Exchange Administrator Center.
- Click on Recipients and Activate the Mailbox tab.
- Select the Mailbox which you would like to convert to a Shared Mailbox.
- Navigate to the panel on the right and click Convert.
Within a few minutes the Mailbox would be converted to a Shared Mailbox.
